This may well make sense. In reading the NY papers it seems that Omar Minaya is set to shake up the team. I get the feeling that if they can get the money right, he will swap Cliff Floyd for Sosa. If that happens it would not surprise me at all that Piazza might not be far behind. Minaya apparently like Jose Guillen ... although I'm not sure who on the Mets will keep him in line (Glavine or Stanton, maybe). So maybe there's is some fire to this smoke
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
Mike Piazza - 1B - NYM
The Angels are trying to acquire Mike Piazza to act as a DH and backup catcher, The Sporting News' Ken Rosenthal reports.
Piazza for Jarrod Washburn, Jose Guillen and maybe a little cash? Piazza doesn't want to be a DH, but Anaheim might be an attractive enough situation to get him to waive his no-trade clause. Nov. 15 - 12:20 am et

I agree Washburn isn't very valuable. I like Guillen but the Angels kinda painted themselves in a corner with him. So the deal seems pretty fair to me.giants8307 wrote:SaintsOfTheDiamond wrote:Washburn, Guillen and cash? Anyone else think that's way too much?
Well, Washburn is next to worthless, so not really. Guillen is a very good player, but a good hitting catcher is hard to come by. I think the angels would be pumped if they could get rid of wash, though.
